Musical icon Lulu has said she's taking part in Strictly Come Dancing after having so much fun on Let's Dance for Comic Relief in May of this year. Speaking ahead of Saturday's launch show, Lulu however admitted she was completely out of her comfort zone on the dancing series.

The singing sensation, with a career that has spanned five decades and included collaborations with the likes of David Bowie, Take That, Elton John and Paul McCartney, is among 14 celebrities taking part this year.

Lulu said about joining the show: "I did Let's Dance For Comic Relief earlier this year and performed Soulja Boy's Crank That. I had so much fun!"

Asked about what she was hoping for in her professional partner, the former Eurovision winner replied: "Someone with the most patience! And someone I can have fun with would be a bonus."

With this year's show featuring a live performance in front of 6,000 fans at Wembley Arena, Lulu confessed: "I wouldn't be [nervous] if I was singing but this is something completely out of my comfort zone."
